Manchester Emergency Dentist
Dental emergencies never seem to occur at a convenient time. If you are looking for an Emergency Dentist in Manchester, please give our office a call at (605) 622-2425. If you are dealing with a medical or life-threatening emergency, please call 911.
Dental emergencies consist of injuries or accidents that have cracked, chipped or broke your tooth. Your tooth may have even fallen out! Often times dental emergencies occur during common situations such as eating food or chewing on ice. Dental emergencies can also occur during high-impact sports, rough play or during a trip and fall accident.
If you have chipped a tooth, typically you can wait until normal business hours. If you have severely chipped or cracking a tooth, lost a tooth or are suffering from nerve damage, immediate care will be needed in order to preserve the tooth.
If a tooth has fallen out or a majority of the tooth is missing, you will need to see a professional as soon as possible. If you are able to place the tooth comfortably and securely in the socket, that is the best course of action. If this is not possible, you can store the tooth in a cup of mile or saliva to keep the tooth healthy until you are able to see your emergency dentist.
If you're unsure if you're dealing with an emergency situation, don't be afraid to give your dentist a call anyway! Our office will be able to help you decipher if your particular dental issue needs to be addressed immediately or if it can wait until a newly scheduled appointment.
